V-Moda's styling isn't for everyone. We know. Its sound, on the other hand, should appeal to every last one of you. Though some found them a bit heavy, the Crossfade's are comfortable during long stretches. Packed inside each metal-clad ear cup is a Dual-Diaphragm High-Definition Driver for excellent, even sound. They're durable, too. We've dropped ours multiple times, spilled water on 'em, and they still rock. Another plus: the Kevlar cord (with built-in three-button remote and mic) that never gets tangled.
